. >> people are in homes that are un un uninhabitable. it's going to be increasingly clear that they're uninhabitable when the temperature goes down and they can't heat their homes. then we'll need to find housing for thousands right away. >> they've restored service to more than 75% of the customers in new york, but the millions who remain without power now have to deal with the cold front. forecasters say temperatures are expected to drop below freezing tonight and tomorrow evening. the american red cross is moving 80,000 blankets into the region ahead of colder weather. >>> let's head to belmar, new jersey now. that part of the jersey shore was hit pretty hard. what kind of progress are you able to see at this juncture? >> reporter: well, you're looking down ocean avenue here behind me. this was the beating heart, really, of the shoreline in belmar, no doubt about that, their boardwalk completely ripped up. they have a couple of lakes inland in this town. they filled up with water. the town center flooded. hundreds and hundreds of people were forced out of their homes, had to be r
, the talking points, if you will, did not originate from her or the u.n. is it appropriate she's the face of all of this in your opinion? >> thank you, tamron, for having me on. it's unfortunate that dr. rice has become the face of this, because, in fact, she is a highly regarded accomplished civil servant leading our mission in the united nations. she was put in the spotlight in order to communicate what the intelligence community and administration believed to be the best way to communicate the attack on benghazi. rightly now congress is looking at the question of what went wrong, but the question about whether or not she is personally responsible for it is a bit far-fetched, and it's really going into a point where members of congress are making themselves look silly. they're day in and day outhave different statements. the house sent a letter to house republicans on posing her potential nomination to secretary of state. less than half signed onto it. there's not much appetite for this fight. we saw it in the campaign, and we're not sure where this is heading. it does seem like a losin
ambassador to the u.n. what about what's going on in the u.n. this week? with the palestinians looking to have their status -- there's an entire agenda. the idea that we're focusing on one set of talking points is ridiculous. >> i know you to be a pretty nonpartisan guy, do you smell anything fishy with this benghazi investigation or the way it was handled? do you sense any incompetence? because if you talk to john mccain or lindsey graham, you ask the question, are we talking about a cover-up or general inconfidence? >> the idea was, why did they turn down the all the added security? why did the ambassador go without adequate security? that's a real issue. why were these decisions made? the question, then, of the talking points, what did the cia provide, why was the intelligence community late in apparently getting the points right? it's not the first time we've seen things like that. it's worth looking at. but the idea that a month later, we're still focusing on this rather than basic questions of foreign policy on how to deal with terrorism in these areas. seems to me we are missing
multicountry conflict in the world. he'd worked with the u.n. to keep that attack from happening. he had made his intentions clear and then england and france just went behind his back and did it anyway and they did it a week before he was facing re-election. >> president dwight d. eisenhower is re-elected to the highest office in the land as world peace faces the greatest crisis since the second world war. the electoral victory comes after a tumultuous campaign in which the major, domestic and foreign policies of this administration were put sharply an issue. >> especially that last week. dwight eisenhower ultimately pressured our allies to end that war. they did end it. he won re-election decisively that year in a victory that was partly attributed to his handling of that unexpected sudden foreign policy disaster that landed in the middle of the campaign a week and a day before election day. 1956. real october surprises like that one almost never happen. the phrase "october surprise" is really overused. we talk about october surprises as if there is one every year, as if they happen all the
slandering our ambassador to the u.n., susan rice. saying she didn't tell the truth about the attack on our consulate in libya. and even that she's not that the bright. but today, mccain came face to face with the facts. for the first time, we saw the cia talking points on which ambassador rice based her comments on the sunday talk shows. the cia said "the currently available information suggests that the demonstrations in benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the u.s. embassy in cairo and evolved into a direct assault against the u.s. diplomatic post in benghazi and subsequently its annex. there are indications that extremists participated in the violent demonstrations." and, of course, that's exactly what ambassador rice told the american people. >> our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. we believe that it looks like extremist elements individuals joined in that -- in that effort. >> ambassador rice reported exactly what she was told by the cia. and testifyi
to shrink people's access to the polls. it's unacceptable and un-american. >> good to have you on the program. thank you so much. now let me bring in former republican governor from new jersey. it's always good to see you and let me ask you first about your state because i saw this morning, i think there's still almost a million homes without power. so many schools are closed and another storm is coming. i mean, that's hard to believe. how are you all doing in new jers jersey and do you think it's going to have an impact on turnout? >> well, we're one of these people that don't have power. although being on a farm, we have a generator, so we're so much better off than the shore, but there are a lot of people that are still hurts. chris christie's a republican. he's doing everything he can to make sure people have the tount to vote. our polling place has been changed, but the signs are up. he's bringing in everything he can to ensure that people have access to the ballot. i don't know what went on in florida, but in this day and age, it's inexcusable that in this country, we hav
back, just about 20 minutes before the hour now, the united nations declared today malala day, the u.n. is honoring the pakistani girl who was shot in the head for standing up for a female's right to education. >> reporter: it is staggering to see her out of bed with her father, looking through some of the thousands of get well cards she received. it's exactly a month since she was shot at point-blank rang by taliban gunman. despite the bullet passing through had her head and neck, she is able to talk. doctors are still assessing the extent of the damage. >> i'm thankful to all of these loving well wishes for malala, who strongly condemn the assassination attempt on her, who pray for her health, and support the great cause of malala which is education, freedom of thought, and freedom of expression. >> the cards have come from all over the world. this one from myanmar, burma, some signed by households, some by offices. there is now an internet campaign for her to win the noble peace prize. she is in very good hands, surprising everyone with her determination to recover. >>> former briti
